How to Make Chocolate Pecan low cal cookies


  1. Mix together the margarine and sugars.
  2. Add egg, water and vanilla.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Add chocolate chips, nuts and candies.
  5. Bake at 325 for 12 minutes. Remove to waxed paper until cool. Enjoy!
  6. Note - I added a little more than a teaspoon of vanilla, not exactly a teaspoon. Also, these come out good with walnuts too. The candies are not necessary either - I just had some and decided to use them.
